Jeff Bridges, GQ

Jeff Bridges has been happily married for nearly 40 years.

But the Oscar winner has some pretty bold advice for anyone who has a desire to cheat on their significant other.

"Well, live and learn. Go ahead and do it, and we'll see how it goes," the 63-year-old actor tells GQ when asked what advice he would give to a man contemplating being unfaithful. (Though, to be fair, this sounds as much like a warning as it does an endorsement.)

"Suppression can kind of get you in trouble, too," he added. "I was reading an interesting thing—this kind of goes with the meditation and the spiritual side of things that I'm interested in. The difference between supression and refraining. When you touch something hot, you don't have to repress the desire to touch it again."

Speaking of desire, moviegoers clearly didn't have any when it came to Bridges' recent film R.I.P.D., which bombed at the box office this summer.

But the Crazy Heart star doesn't seem too surprised that it wasn't a hit.

While he says he had "a great time" making it, he admits, "When I saw it, I was a little underwhelmed. For my mind, the studio made some, uh, choices that I wouldn't have made."
